Building on the broadcasting of the 2015 and 2016 Tour de France, ARD and Amaury Sport Organisation have concluded an agreement aiming for daily live broadcast of the Tour de France in 2017 and 2018.

ARD plans to broadcast more than 90 minutes live during the week and more during the weekends. The Tour will this year begin in Dusseldorf and ARD will provide significantly more air time for the two opening stages.  In addition, each stage will be broadcast in full on the sportschau.de website

The Tour de France, as in previous years, will also be broadcast on Eurosport Germany.

Yann Le Moenner, Managing Director of A.S.O. said: “We are thrilled that the Tour de France will continue to be aired on a major German general interest channel as is the case in most of the European countries. With the Grand Départ in Dusseldorf and the broadcasting of the Tour de France by ARD as well as the take-over by A.S.O. of the Frankfurt Grand Prix and the relaunch of the Tour of Germany scheduled for 2018, the goal is to ensure the development of cycling in Germany.”
